Adding to the first three matches confirmed for Backlash, WWE has announced the Bray Wyatt vs Randy Orton’s match also which may even be the main event match of the day.
The WWE has been advertising this match for a fairly long time and fans seems to like the feud which is upcoming. Bray Wyatt has bet to slay Orton at the event show and he event went further insultiing and making mockery of the 12 time WWE champion Randy Orton.
Bray Wyatt asked Randy Orton how his head was on Tuesday’s Smackdown Live after The Viper required 10 staples in his head following the brutal beatdown at the hands of Brock Lesnar. Wyatt did not wait for an answer, instead, he continued to verbally attack Orton by saying that Orton was not a god like him but just a mere mortal. When things heated up and tempers ran high , Wyatt suddenly vanished from the rocking chair as he is prone to do.
The rumoured match at the Backlash PPV could prove to be really handy for both Superstars, particularly for Bray Wyatt who is on the verge of becoming an irrelevant superstar on the WWE roster. Wyatt has faced high calibre performers like John Cena, The Undertaker and Chris Jericho in the past, but he faced all these guys as the leader of the Wyatt family by having both Eric Rowan and Luke Harper on his back.
Now, without Harper and Rowan on his side, he needs to prove his in-ring talent to remain in the main event picture of the blue brand. If we look at the SmackDown roster “The Eater of Worlds” is arguably the second best heel on the brand behind AJ Styles.
With everything said, Wyatt is in a must-win situation for his feud with Randy Orton. There is no denying the fact that if Wyatt fails to beat Orton at Backlash PPV then the WWE Universe will begin to tune out his Schtick slowly. Reports according to sportskeeda.com.
